This week’s Picture of the Week offers readers a time to reflect on the beauty to be found on your own doorstep.
It was taken by reader Tony Gidlow at the canal lock at the bottom of Longfield Lane in Ilkeston last weekend.
“On the right, although you cannot see them are the railway bridge and a small nature reserve,” he explained.
“It was a lovely still day and lots of wildlife to be seen.”
